Volga went to Siberia

T8 has completed the new round of a large-scale upgrade of the regional data transmission network of a large telecom operator in the Siberian Federal District. During the upgrade, new Volga DWDM equipment was installed in more than 50 communication nodes. In a number of segments, the speed of communication channels increased more than 10 times!

T8 specialists optimized the operator's backbone network scheme and installed modern Volga wavelength division multiplexing systems. The planned modernization of regional networks was carried out due to their high load and insufficient bandwidth. The new equipment was installed in large cities and at regional hubs in the Altai Krai, Buryatia, Kemerovo, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk and Tomsk regions. T8 specialists carried out a large-scale work on setting up channels and training telecom operator's specialists to work with new systems. At some nodes, Volga equipment was installed for the first time. The upgrade project has been carried out for several years and over 500 pieces of equipment had installed. The project used coherent transponders with speeds of 10 Gbit/s and 100 Gbit/s and other wavelength division multiplexing equipment manufactured by T8.

After upgrading the network, the customers of the telecom operator have the opportunity to improve the quality and speed of their Internet connection significantly, that has become vital in the current conditions of the pandemic. It became more comfortable for people to work from home, take distance learning and spend their time using all the possibilities of the Internet.
